. >> joining me now by phone mlb baseball's peter gammons. what i found interesting talking to negro league players and also modern players, if there's one sea change it's that players are more outspoken about what's going on. >> absolutely, chuck. if you go, not following relationship between major league baseball and players' association for a long time, going back to marvin biller, roberts found him, what they had to battle through against baseball ownership. i understand that. became such a lightning rod in the late '90s, early part of this century. the union which was very much based in the national labor relations board fought ideas of any testing whatsoever. what's happened is -- i don't know how much the union is going to be ruptured, but the sea change is players have risen and said the union hurt us in many ways because it had an uneven playing field. we want it leveled. they have been so outspoken. michael weiner running the has responded very strongly with them. a-rod is a little different case because there is that feeling that maybe bud selig went overboard on rodriguez but th
